Answer:

#= (5d^3)/(2cf^2)#

Explanation:

This is all one big term with number and variable factors.

  • Cancel the numbers #(cancel5c^3d)/(c^4d) xx (f^2d^3c)/(cancel10^2cf^4)#

  • Multiply the numerators and multiply the denominators by adding the indices of like bases to give one fraction:

#= (5c^4d^4f^2)/(2c^5df^4)#

  • Divide by subtracting the indices of like bases so that the indices are left positive. (Big - small)

#= (5d^3)/(2cf^2)#
